    Rivendell boasts nice rooms, a pleasant setting, friendly staff and well-working wifi close to central Windhoek. The breakfast system (you have to order your eggs the night before) is a bit awkward, but I can fully recommend staying here.

    Hi, Rivendell is around 2.5km from the NHTC, about a 5 minute drive. I would say it's a bit too far to walk, especially as the route crosses a few major roads.
